Vibration in 2005 prado 3l Diesel auto

Have got new tyres on and have been balanced, prado has done about 220k, you can feel the vibration more when you get up over 90km and it seams at time's if you take your foot off it goes away,so seams worse under load, hard to point out if it is coming from front or back, stearing wheel is not bad, but seams to come through the whole vehicle,have looked at tail shaft uni- joints and cant find any wear,not sure if front CV joints could cause this,can you help.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Ranger vibration on steering wheel and noise @ 110 Km/h

Check the idler arm and pittman arm, then the tie rod ends for ANY play. The pittman arm is the one on the steering gearbox that connects to the tie rod, and the idler arm is the one that connects from the tie rod to the frame. Replacing the parts is a pretty inexpensive and straightforward job, but you will need to have the wheels re-aligned afterwards.

SOURCE: Inordinant amount of vibration during acceleration

Clunking can be from c/v joints, hub bearing, lower ball joints or strut tower bearings, also from engine mounts (I know you checked but with a stickshift car it's difficult to load it properly without frying the clutch) Vibration likewise is difficult to find when it happens under load for same reason.A code check may or may not give you much to work with and O2 readouts often come from something other than an O2 sensor failure, rather from a failure upstream that sends the exhaust mixture beyond the sensors range.
It's impossible to make a diagnosis on these problems on-line because being there is important in doing this kind of diagnosis. I suggest you seek the opinion of a well trained experienced tech.who can actually be there to observe and test.

SOURCE: CV JOINTS wearing out..

CV joints wont cause bad tyre wear, wheel alignment angles will and so will worn bushes or ball joints get front suspension checked bad shockers or struts will cause tyre wear.
CV joints cause clicking noise on hard take off worse when doing U turn, or sharp turn from take off.

SOURCE: vibration felt in front floorboard

Yes it can but the dealer would have found it on the test drive if they test drove the vehicle. The only other causes for the vibration I can think of should have been found on inspection as well. Check your bushings and mounts for the sway bar and your tie rod ends as well.

Hie how can I eliminate balance shafts which are worn out badly on a nissan hardbody 3l turbo diesel 4x4

balance shafts are there to remove harmonic vibrations from the engine . to remove the shafts will cause premature failure of the engine
the balance shafts do nothing but balance and do not wear as they have only bearings to hold them staright

Vibration through steering.wheel ?

The first thing I'd check would be my tires. Then if it isn't the tires it would be in the front end. Tie Rods, Ball joints. steering linkage. or if at worst The Rack and pinion.

My 2005 crv honda vibrates at 40klm and through to 70klm tyres have been changed around at the honda dealers but still vibrating

When you had the tyres swopped round, did they check the balance of each wheel and if all wheels ran true (not bent or buckled), or any deform in a tyre. Generally if you can drive through a vibration it is due to a wheel being out of balance. Other cause of vibration, is wheel alignment being out, (constant, and gets worse as you speed up). Drive shaft out of true (balance or bent)

I have a 97 s320 and i get a vibration between 50-55mph after that it smooths out

The 1st thing to get looked at is the wheel balance.Have them checked.At the same time,if the tyres are o.k. have them rotated.This means you swap the tyres from the front to the back.Always keep the tyres on the same side of the car.So left rear goes to left front and the same on the righthand side.Also,a wheel alignment should be done.These are a tyre shop job.Cheap and doesn't take that long.If these don't correct the problem,the next thing to get looked at are the front wheel bearings.Get the tyres done 1st.This is the 1st step and also the most common problem.Hope this helps
